10- Gentle words and expressing feelings
The language of love consists of tender words, touches, hugs, and kisses. When we call a partner things like “sweetheart,” “darling,” or “dear,” we create a special intimate atmosphere. The choice of affectionate names occurs unconsciously and shows how one partner relates to the other, who dominates the relationship, and how well they are balanced.
By the way, men need all this lovey-dovey stuff just as much as women do. Researchers from the US interviewed 1,000 married couples and found that those husbands who often kiss and hug with their wives feel 3 times happier in a marriage than those who don’t.
So if your man frowns every time you try to hug him and call “sweetheart,” the reason is not his natural male rigor. As sad as it may sound, his feelings have probably faded away.
